Thanksgiving Eve Open Thread

Tomorrow is for turkey, but I made lasagne for tonight.

In the news, the UK is considering legislation to force internet service providers to keep more user detail records:

Prime Minister David Cameron ’s government unveiled a new counterterror bill Wednesday that would require Internet service providers to retain records that would help identify potential terror suspects using a particular phone or computer.

Yesterday a UK government report blamed FB for not preventing a murder by reporting an exchange that occurred between 2 users. Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear argument in a case involving Facebook threats.

We don't need more internet surveillance.This is just another bandaid approach that won't stop terrorism or make us safer but will infringe on everyone's privacy rights.

This is an open thread, all topics welcome -- including what's on your menu for tomorrow.
